Registrar expanding number of domains that can be sold in its aftermarket.
GoDaddy is vastly expanding the number of top level domain names that can be sold on its aftermarket starting tomorrow.
The company will add the capability to sell domains under 435 top level domains. 230 will be gTLDs that were previously blocked from listing and the rest are country code domain names.
Customers will be able to list domains directly on GoDaddy Auctions or through Afternic. For now, Afternic syndication to GoDaddy will only be to its auction platform. However, GoDaddy is quickly working to syndicate these to the purchase path with fast-transfer as well. When fast transfer is enabled, it will only be for GoDaddy-to-GoDaddy transfers at first.
GoDaddy currently only enables fast transfer for .com, .net, .org, .info and .co domain names.
For new top level domain name listings, sellers will only be able to list domain names that renew at the top level domain’s standard prices. Premium renewals will not be allowed.
